WHO IS QAASIM & THE JUGGERNAUT WAR PARTY?


Juggernaut War Party (JWP) is a Funk Rock Hip-Hop Soul Crew that is headed by the leadership of a 22 Year Old Hedgehog from Brooklyn, New York by the name of Qaasim "DRK" Middleton, aka "The Strongest". 

You've seen him on, HBO's "The Music In Me," Nickelodeons "The Naked Brothers Band," FOX's "American Idol Season XIV", and Netflix's "The Get Down." 

Now he and the crew are ready to hit the stage and body everything.

Qaasim has been singing and writing music since the age of 10.  He got his first start as a musician at the tender age of 2 & 1/2 years of age when he was playing percussion and singing live on stage with BK Based Crew "The Plague's" HYDRA, comprised of 3 members including, his 2 Uncle's, Rodney "L.R. Blitzkrieg" Willie, Graeme "GMS" Sirbirsky, and is his dad Keith "Wildchild" Middleton.  He started taking dance lessons at the age of 6 with Creative Outlet Dance Theatre of Brooklyn under the leadership of Jamel Gaines where he met his mentor/choreographer - Kevin "KBez / Nino Bez" Hunte of "So You Think You Can Dance" finalist, and when he was just 9 years old, he was one of 5 children prodigies featured on the HBO family series, "The Music in Me". That following year, he landed a series regular role on Nickelodeon's "Naked Brothers Band"  where his little brother Khalil Middleton aka "Tallboy," also appeared as his "little brother" & his Mother, Toni Seawright, former (and 1st Black to win) MIss Mississippi, also appeared as his "mom."

He went on to gain the Top 8th Spot on FOX's Season XIV of "American Idol," as well as a recurring role with his brother Khalil on the Netflix series, "The Get Down." Also moving on to play the role of "Senator K" on the show "Atlanta" on FXQaasim went on to create the Juggernaut War Party for Afropunk's 2015 Battle of The Bands and the crew has been growing and melding together ever since. Qaasim says his music is influenced by the likes of J-Dilla, Prince, Michael Jackson, John Mayer, D'Angelo, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and Flying Lotus. And you can see, hear, and feel those influences when you experience Qaasim & The Juggernaut War Party. Look Out for Qaasim & The JWP for upcoming events
